Dr. Tannetje Crocker joins Dr. Moriah for this week’s episode of That Vet Life Show. As well as being an ER veterinarian at VEG (Veterinary Emergency Group, whose founder we recently interviewed on The Veterinary Business Success Show, click here to listen); Dr. Tannetje is a veterinary mentor, speaker, writer, and social media sensation.
Crocker began her journey into veterinary medicine in 2009 after graduating from the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating, Dr. Tannetje went on to specialize in equine at an internship in Southern California before working as a solo equine ambulatory practitioner. It wasn’t until 2014 that Crocker transitioned into small animal medicine, which she has stuck with ever since.
Being a full-time veterinarian inspired Tannetje to start ‘Dr. Crocker – Pet Vet’, a social media brand that Dr. Tannetje uses to empower and mentor students and young veterinarians. ‘I am inspired by fellow veterinarians and vet students who want to contribute, support, and move this profession in a new direction.’ – Dr. Crocker.
During this episode, Dr. Moriah and Dr. Tannetje discuss the disparity between young and older vets, the salary expectations of new graduates, and why younger vets are opting to work fewer hours.
